My Grounded Videos Season 3

Eric Getting Grounded

On YouTube, a subculture of videos that utilizes Vyond and Plotagon emerged in 2011. Colloquially known as "grounded videos" or "punishment day videos", these videos usually feature characters such as the protagonists from animated children's and adults' programs, including Caillou, Dora the Explorer, Little Bill, Arthur, Peppa Pig, The Backyardigans, Beavis and Butt-Head, Daria and others acting ridiculously out of character and generally getting into trouble, resulting in over-the-top punishments. Generally, this is a grounding for a very long and arbitrary amount of time such as a century or multiple decades, often exaggerated into billions of years. These punishments can also be as extreme as immediate life imprisonment or capital punishment carried out by law enforcement. Grounding videos are usually created with the intent of comedic effect, as the text-to-speech system Vyond uses to provide voices can fail to recognize the large numbers used in those videos, and often reads onomatopoeic sounds as literal words rather than expressions.[1] Individual videos have seen viewership in the millions.[2]


The first video made from Vyond which involved grounding was made on Janurary 22, 2009 by tienoz. The video was called The Boss Of Everything - YOU"LL GET OLD.

The first official grounded video, which used Comedy World and text-to-speech voices, was made on July 2, 2011 by adamkleinschmidt2003. It was called Brian Gets In Trouble At School.

It is currently unknown what the first Caillou Gets Grounded video is, but it was most likely made between late 2012 - mid 2013.

Basis for most of these videos:

The premise (for all grounded videos) is a child intentionally screwing up in something, returning to their residence (typically a house; some grounded videos have kids living in other places), and getting grounded by their parents for a ridiculous amount of years, the amount of time they can get grounded varies dramatically (for instance, some children in these videos get grounded for a ridiculous number of years, decades, or eternities while others get grounded for only a couple days). All basic grounded videos are composed of the following:

Anatomy of grounded videos

All grounded videos are constructed like this:

A troublemaker wants to do a bad thing, like ditching school or being mean to the family members, or literally doing anything from the screw-up scene. They get caught, and then grounded by their parents or in extremely rare cases, the person who made the video itself.

The Screw-Up Scene

This scene involves a kid screwing-up (with intent or sometimes even as an accident) or causing havok (also with intent or an accident). Here's a list of some of the things these troublemakers do in these videos:

  • A male character (entering a boy's restroom in school with disgust) decides to visit the much more pleasant girls restroom or viceversa
  • Bad characters controlling good person
  • Characters creating earthquakes by simply jumping or pulling down a lever (to simulate one)
  • Characters receiving the worst cards on behavior card day
  • Characters misbehaving in stores because they want something that is out of stock or expensive
  • Characters misbehaving in restaurants (mainly McDonald's) because they want something that is out of stock or expensive
  • Characters stealing people's junk food but first they go to the store and eating food from the shelf without paying
  • Characters cheating off of somebody else's test
  • Hijacking A Car
  • Characters stealing another's lunch
  • Characters misbehaving at the Pride parade
  • Contradicting the one above this, characters becoming gay
  • Characters watching the THX Sound System logo
  • Characters "deflating" other characters
  • Characters inflating another character into a balloon
  • Characters tricking other characters into having "sex" with a blender
  • Male characters putting thumbs downs
  • Female characters putting thumbs downs
  • Male characters hitting on girls
  • Female characters hitting on boys
  • Bad characters fake wishing Happy Birthday to good characters
  • Female characters dancing in their swimsuits
  • Characters putting someone people in her bikini
  • Characters divorcing each other
  • Characters farting, peeing and pooping
  • Characters Saying Yes/No
  • Bad Characters making grounded video out of Good Characters
  • Bad Characters making ungrounded video out of Bad Characters
  • Characters making fun of somebody else
  • Characters bullying someone else
  • Characters bombing the school or a restaurant
  • Characters throwing a giant temper tantrum
  • Characters making a fake VHS opening (more rare)
  • Characters fighting
  • Characters pulling the fire alarm
  • Characters pranking one another
  • Characters making grounded videos out of users (not always)
  • Characters calling new babies bad names (such as either insulting them or calling them "stupid", "retarded" or other bad names
  • Characters simply doing nothing (very, very rare)
  • Characters watching or bringing to the school R, PG-13 or NC-17 rated movies
  • Characters repainting places or changing the sign
  • Characters creating or restoring YouTube account
  • Characters swearing and starting an argument
  • Characters yelling out a word
  • Characters using wasps or hornets to their advantage

The Grounded Scene

As previously seen, countries represent crossroads in videos on bases where they are usually punished for absurd time limits. Parents can ground the troublemaker for different times Worst of all, they ground them for long times including tranquility, infinity, double forever, forever, for a life, any other word that ends in ity or a whole gigantor bunch of numbers (like, but not limited to, 53, 268, 476, 958, 096, 745, 863, 452, 325, 743, 856, 985, 758, 343, 654, 735, 498, 575, 342, 624, 795, 875, 342, 625, 756, 987, 485, 263, 530, 750, 958, or 53 novemvigintillion years). The videos can be found on land that are not only detestable, but also coolness. Fans are less important.

The Fans:

Yes, as mentioned in the first paragraph of this page, there is in fact, a grounded community home to all of the world's grounded video fans, grounded video creators, and grounded videos. Plenty of them respect opinions from users outside the community, collaborate with non-grounded video makers, and assist others. A large portion of them, however, are viewed as "bigotic users between under age of 12; some of which are adults who behave immaturely". These types of users could sometimes disrespect opinions from grounded video haters (posting grounded threats to their channels). They might also upload grounded threat videos recorded with their webcam (exposing themselves to the public; cyber-grounding somebody else). Some of these users force others into liking GoAnimate, hating Flash and baby shows, and most evidently, un-subbing them.

It's a relief that half of these grounded video makers actually respect the opinions of others and actually upload different videos once in a while (some of which actually departed from grounded videos all together including AMSalley94).

My Fake Reviews:

Extremely inappropriate stuff

Most people post videos following the story of Eric getting grounded. However, most of these, and even the original videos, are extremely inappropriate stuff.

bad luck finding anything normal

The only thing you can find are grounded videos in Vyond.

List of Confusions:

Several people have confused these for

  1. Elsagate (due to kids characters being in inappropriate/disturbing situations)
  2. The Actual Shows (https://www.imdb.com/user/ur26949344/?ref_=tt_urv)
  3. Family Guy Cutaway Gags (one YouTube reviewer confused it for that)
  4. YouTube Poops (due to the risque nature of it)
  5. Intentionally Lazy Animation (several optimistic GoAnimate "rants" confuse it)
  6. Child Abuse (mostly due to #7)
  7. Punishment Days (since they are often overlapped with each other)
  8. MS Paint Videos (due to the TTS voices)
  9. Kid Friendly Fan Content (some episodes are actually kid friendly)
  10. Toy Reviews (https://www.imdb.com/user/ur26949344/?ref_=tt_urv)
